MANCHESTER - Rio Ferdinand scored his first goal in five years to give Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson a 2-1 win over Swansea in Ferguson's last game as manager at Old Trafford.
Arguably the greatest manager in the history of the game, Ferguson patrolled his home touchline for the last time after being given a guard of honour by both sets of players prior to kick-off in a game which also witnessed Paul Scholes's final act at Old Trafford before his second retirement this summer.
Javier Hernandez put United in front after 39 minutes with a poacher's finish and after Michu had levelled with a lovely volley, Ferdinand waited until the 87th minute to smack home his goal with an emphatic finish.
